Also known as: City Farm Cemetery
West Meadow Road
Rockland
Knox County
Maine  USA
Postal Code: 04841

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Also known over the years as the City Farm Cemetery, Poor Farm Cemetery and Evergreen Cemetery. Located on West Meadow Rd. near the Mill Stream.

The Almshouse Poor Farm that was located next to the cemetery was the original Isaiah Tolman homestead. It closed in 1959.

There are only two marked graves. Over time the metal markers have been moved from their original locations. There are a few other surviving metal markers with no names or are illegible.

There are four unidentified sailors that were found off the coast of Maine in 1942 buried here. It is thought that they are from one or more merchant ships sunk by German U-boats during WWII.
